Twitter Favorite Gets A 6-Figure Movie DealBy: Amanda Crum - April 26, 2012
Funny-girl Kelly Oxford, who has garnered quite a Twitter following with her cheeky sense of humor and way with words, has just sold a script to Warner Brothers for a six-figure advance.
The writer, whose collection of humorous essays Everything Is Perfect When You’re A Liar will be published this fall, is about to become a big name in Hollywood. Her script–which is already being compared to movies in the vein of Juno and Bridesmaids–is called Son Of A Bitch and centers on a young woman whose wild ways don’t stop when she gets pregnant. She’s also had pilot scripts grabbed up by the likes of CBS and NBC.
Dry and deliciously sarcastic, Oxford uses her 140 characters on Twitter well, commenting on celebrities and the adventures of being a wife and mom. Judging on what I’ve seen from her so far, I’d say it’s a fair bet we won’t have another Whitney Cummings on our hands (gag).
Nancy Grace’s voice makes us die faster.
Kim Cattrall must be pretty tired of acting like she’s sexy.
A great relationship is when you notice your guy has just outfarted a giant fart from 2yrs ago and all you think is ‘Oh my god he did it!!”
Tilda Swinton and Thom Yorke are the same person.
If someone tells you “I never cry” while crying, whisper “You’re a fucking liar.”
If your baby is singing a Nicki Minaj song, I will trip that baby.
Tonight I have to hide candy around my house & pretend a rabbit did it because all of my kids’ friends’ asshole parents are doing it.
